My Film Shoot For The Essential One & Win A £20 Gift Card
Blogging is just so varied and stimulating and well, never (ever) boring, and I can’t fully express in words (but I’ll try) just how much I love working with the exquisitely refined baby and maternity brand The Essential One. It really is a dream collab for me.
The Essential One kindly dressed my second son Alexander as a baby (from birth in fact) starting a long and close relationship which recently culminated in me becoming the face and ambassador of the brand. What an honour. Wow.
I always hoped I could work with brands I admired in this capacity and blogging has seen these dreams come to fruition for me.
I must note too that my most beloved baby clothes of Alexander’s, even now, are by The Essential One, they effortlessly epitomise style and quality and are exactly how I imagined I would dress my baby when he was but a twinkle in his Daddy’s eye.
But back to the film and the present day, when just over a week ago I set off to Bolton to The Essential One’s HQ for a very special little project to shoot the first in a series of style films I am presenting for the brand, showcasing their latest pieces as they drop darling!
The campaign saw me working with model Joanna and inspiring entrepreneur and founder of The Essential One, Karen. The minute I met Karen several months ago, we clicked and I knew we’d work brilliantly together.
A visionary, Karen has many years experience heading kidswear for some of the UK’s biggest brands and The Essential One is her baby, and it’s thriving.
It quite simply is a joy working and learning from Karen and being a tiny part of the Essential One story. These guys feel like family.
Karen knows and cares about classic enduring style for both mother and baby, that will always and importantly be comfortable for both.
Using the finest of materials, her collection literally does what it says on the tin and offers essential pieces for your own and your child’s capsule wardrobes.
So, taking my own mother, my Momager (haha) with me for the shoot day, together with Joanna and Karen we got to filming some of my most favourite essential items from the new A/W collection, out in August, which I styled up into key looks from a relaxed day look, to work style and occasion wear too.
Versatile, super soft, flattering and always effortlessly chic, these garments are must-haves for stylish mamas-to-be everywhere.
And the beauty is, these clothes will work for women post-birth and if nursing too, and will also last from one pregnancy to the next. Perfect.
